So sad to hear the news of the schoolgirl who died after a severe allergic reaction after holidaying with her family in Spain

While I was working in the kitchen especially my time spent in the pastry section I always tried to be extremely careful with any high allergen foods especially nuts. Its much easier when you know you have someone coming into the restaurant who has an allergy so you can prepare or at least let you know they have an allergy when they arrive. What I always found frustrating is when people don’t let you know about a potentially life-threatening allergy until the plate arrives in front of them.

If I had a serious allergy which I am fortunate enough not to, I would find eating out very difficult to put your life in the hands of another person who is cooking your food.

What procedures do you have in your kitchen if someone comes into the restaurant who has a severe allergy?
